Good grief......for the last two days I have had this searing pain in the back of my neck, across my shoulders and up the back of my skull! This is the worst headache I've had for a while. I know that it is probably caused by looking downwards at my new grandson. Any movement of my head side-to-side or up and down always does this. What in the world are we supposed to do? Just stop living? I wear my neck brace most of the time but I couldn't wear it and hold the little guy. Today I'm just sick of it all! All the constant pain, ever increasing restrictions and loss of independance! I'm usually a very positive person but the last two days have really been rough. I can't take the Morphine in the morning as prescribed because I have too many family responsibilities then and it makes me sleepy. By the time I can take it, it is about
2 p.m. and the pain is out of control then. So, I'm just taking the Morphine at night but then again, things are really bad by then. I hope this thorastic epidural on Tues. helps. I'm really down today...............
